Sara Miranda-Sobota and Vanessa Leuszler are co-facilitators of Girls Got Game in Surrey, BC. The program is funded by the Canadian Women’s Foundation and delivered by Options Community Services Society, in partnership with the City of Surrey.
This is the fifth post in the Confidence Stories series in partnership with Always®. Confidence Stories features stories, tips and ideas to support girls, build their confidence and encourage them to Keep Playing #LikeAGirl.
Through the support of generous donors like Always, we are able help more than 1,000 girls in 44 communities to participate in programs that engage their bodies, minds and spirits.
Vanessa and I are in craft room 2 at Guildford Recreation Centre. We have our Girls Got Game sign on the door so that parents know which room we are in today. There are snacks, table activities and small classroom games ready for the girls, and as they enter the room, we hear laughter, chit-chat, and questions about what we are going to do today, as well as what snacks we’ll be having!
